Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

The Big Picture: GDP versus Wages

The wealthiest quintile's total wages income are down 8.3% after taxes? That counter-inutitive statement is shown in the chart below from today's WSJ.

My own experience has been that the cut in Capital Gains tax (from 20% to 15%) had an impact, but most especially, the slashing of the Dividends Tax (from as high as 39% top bracket down to 15%) has had a huge, after tax impact.
 
Down 8.3% over 5 years doesn't ring true to me (Source is CBO):
